Islamabad: An Islamabad magistrate issued an arrest warrant against former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan over his alleged controversial comments against a female judge.
According to a report by Geo News, the magistrate of Islamabad’s Margalla Police Station issued the warrant in the case registered on August 20 against the PTI Chief for threatening Additional District and Sessions judge Zeba Chaudhry.
The report further added that “The FIR includes four sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC), including 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 189 (threat of injury to public servant), and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant).”
The arrest warrant was issued hours after Imran Khan submitted an affidavit stating that he might have ‘crossed a line’ at a public rally on August 20 in the capital.
The affidavit said that he would never do anything in the future that would hurt the dignity of any court and the judiciary.
He further added that he is ready to apologize to the judge if she thinks that he crossed a ‘red line’.
